Reviews for Hawaiian Ham Salad
"I have not made this yet, but I think I would use pasta instead of rice and add celery for the water chestnuts or maybe both."
"Was not to impressed with this recipe. Macadamia nuts are very expensive so I used peanuts. It just seemed like this recipe was missing something."
"I tried this and it was excellent. Very tasty. I was able to substitute mayonnaise for the yogurt."
